i don't know, that's tough. as were looking at it right now, i think Brown is the best in the division. Gordon has ridiculous potential though.

Do you take him over AJ? I honestly don't know anymore.

This time last year it was Green for me no questions asked. But Brown was just the man last season. While AJ disappeared at times like a Bengal always does. Do we pin the instability on Green or Dalton? And I just don't think Ike Taylor would ever shot down AB like he has AJ. AB is without a doubt better after the catch, but AJ has an unbelievable catching radius and great body control. Hmm...

AB all the way, what makes him great is he gives 100% and doesn't take plays off like those diva WR's, he's consistently good even when up against tough CB's, on the other hand green tends to disappear. I take brown over AJ any day of the week

Oh absolutely and that's why we all love AB. I just wish we could know what AJ would be like if he wasn't trapped in such a shithole organization

Great question.

I think Green is stuck in a shitty situation. On the other hand, AB does stuff (with the ball in his hands), that is eerily reminiscent of Barry Sanders.

Speaking of which, it's akin to comparing John Riggins to Barry Sanders.

SUMMATION:
While you can't go wrong with either one, (gun to my head): give me the elusive guy. Give me AB.

I think that's basically the right choice.

However, the ideal choice is forming some mutant offspring of the two of them and creating an unstoppable monster

Thru 3 seasons AJ Green 460-3833-29 Antonio Brown in 4 seasons.. 412-3561-15 Not even close...Brown is good and a hustler...Green is just a step above.

Brown is definitely the best in the division. Gordon has Chris henry potential and aj green still plays for the bungles so...

It's shocking if you go to a generic NFL message board how lowly Antonio Brown is thought of. I can't tell you how many times I've seen a "Who are the top 10 receivers" thread where NOBODY had him listed except Steeler fans.

Yet, they all throw Josh Gordon in the top 5 like it's a consensus fact. The argument against Antonio is always "He hasn't produced like this season enough," which I can somewhat agree with, yet Josh Gordon is in the exact same boat, and I'd argue his season was much less impressive considering a good chunk of his yards came against prevent defenses in garbage time...

To be fair, Green was their #1 receiver from Day 1 and Brown didn't really get his shot until the postseason of his rookie year. I'd still say Green is the better receiver but I'd say considering they both have basically 3 years of playing time, those stat lines are pretty comparable outside of the huge difference in TDs.
